A refugee from the silly fields of Hollywood where he cavorted with such luminaries as Bugs Bunny and Betty Boop (although the latter was but a brief affair), Steven Paul Leiva has authored six novels and one novella since 2003. His work has been praised by literary great Ray Bradbury, Oscar-winning film producer Richard Zanuck, NY Times bestselling author Diane Ackerman, and Star Trek actor John Billingsley. He has received the Scribe Award from the International Association of Media Tie-in Writers. A traveler among several genres, his books include his witty Hollywood thrillers, BLOOD IS PRETTY and HOLLYWOOD IS AN ALL-VOLUNTEER ARMY, his novelization of the indie family film, the Scribe Award-winning 12 DOGS OF CHRISTMAS , his Sci-Fi satire of first-contact told from the point-of-view of the aliens, TRAVELING IN SPACE, his comic look at happy-ever-afters, BY THE SEA, his surreal political fantasia, IMP, and his bizarre, possibly audacious, somewhat Sci-Fi novella, MADE ON THE MOON, and his latest, JOURNEY TO WHERE, a contemporary "scientific romance" written in the tradition of H.G. Wells and Jules Vern.  You can find all his books on Amazon if you but click HERE
